Video: Immigration in America

I'm a sucker for old educational shorts like the one below. Sadly, though, this film lacks two key ingredients: a chipper announcer whose life must have been swell and a catchy soundtrack.

"Origins and number of immigrants entering the USA from colonial times until 1920, reasons for immigration, adjustment of immigrants to life in the USA, drastic reduction of immigration caused by the Act of 1924."

Encyclopedia Britannica Films, Inc., 1946.
